Try QB64. It has sound functions that are simple to use.

Otherwise you may wait a long time here for an answer. Try the FB site.

burger, this forum is not for promoting QB64. Keep that propaganda in the QB forum.

BigBadKing, look into libraries such as FMOD, Bass, FBsound, etc. There are plenty to choose from.

I found it! thanks.

tried OpenGl? it has 3D sound, that means full control of the sound. for an example, goto your freebasic directory then to the examples and to finish to the sound direction. fire up OpenGL.bas, and use it... :)

personnaly, i use current windows system mcisendstring api to load and play mp3 files and it works.

(no added software needed)

Code: Select all

#include "win/"

Sub initsounds
	Dim As String soundfic
   mcisendstring("open "+chr$(34)+soundfic+chr$(34)+" shareable alias slash",0,0,0)
   mcisendstring("open "+chr$(34)+soundfic+chr$(34)+" shareable alias impact",0,0,0)
End Sub
Sub closesounds 'on exit 
	mcisendstring("close slash",0,0,0)
	mcisendstring("close impact",0,0,0)
End Sub
Sub soundslash
   mcisendstring("play slash from 0",0,0,0)
End Sub
Sub soundimpact
   mcisendstring("play impact from 0",0,0,0)
End Sub
